    Handgun retention

    I'm still trying to find the best fit for handgun retention for my S&W 469, 9mm. It's an older gun I bought used.

    I've looked at some Kydex holsters and some pancakes and at this point it seems to fit, though tightly in a Blackhawk Serpa concealment, Glock 20/21/37 & S&W M&P .45 9/40.

    Does anyone have any experience with the thumbdrive holster?

    Any other S&W 469, 9mm users find anything in Kydex with good retention?

    TIA

    PS - can some kind forum member tell me how to make a new post? I don't see any 'new post' buttons anywhere.

    Lvl 2 Blackhawk Serpa paddle. Good retention, the draw is easy to plug into your muscle memory and your finger lays along the slide naturally as you draw.

    I do not see 'Forum Tools' anywhere. Not on the top menu, not in a drop down.

    (edit) OK, see Forum Tools on the top level forum menu. (duh). Thanks.

    For a plastic paddle holster a ton of people will recommend the Blackhawk Serpa. It is a great OC holster, but does not conceal very well.
    Others will recommend the Safariland with ALS. It is also a very good plastic holster, though a little more expensive.

    For leather OWB many people like the Don Hume 721OT. It is cheap for leather ($45) and well made. It sits relatively high, and is very secure.

    For IWB many people like the crossbreed supertuck or the Comptac M-tac or C-tac.

    With that info you should be able to do a good bit of research via google.

    Agreed. Blackhawk is made in Boise, ID by Americans.
